Oh pot roast.....
I like this recipe, The original was online, but I changed a few things to perfect it
3-4lb beef joint
1 lge Onion
1 cup beef broth
1 lb carrots sliced
4-5 potatos small pieces no bigger than 2"
1 garlic clove
Cut garlic in half rub al over the beef.
Place beef in a skillet on top of the stove with a bit of shortening and brown all each side.
Add vegetables to the bottom of the crockpot
Add the Beef
Pour on broth
(i love garlic so sometimes I will cut thin slithers and stick them in the beef.)
Cook for 8 hours onCURRENTLY IN THE CROCK POT
I am cooking my DH's favourite dis, its really easy. (I cant stand beans so I dont eat it)
Beans and Ham with cornbread. this is enough for two people
10oz Dry Great Northern beans
1 tsp of onion powder,
1 pack of diced ham
in the morning:
Check to see if the beans should be pre boiled, I think most do.
Pre boil your beans on the stove top, usually for about 10 minutes,
Put the beans in the crock pot with enough water to cover them,
Add the seasoning. cook on low
Cook all day on low, about an hour before serving add the ham turn the crock pot to high and leave the lid off.
When the beans are so soft they are almost mush the dinner is ready to eat,at this stage I turn back to low and replace the lid I normally make a packet of jiffy cornbread with a tablespoon of sugar added to the mix.
This meal is popular with DH family but I really don't like it....but if you like beans then you will probably like it!
DH will eat the left overs with a burger the following night.
